9780857282033: Old, Bold and Won’t Be Told: Shakespeare’s Amazing Ageing Ladies

Old women in Early Modern plays are stereotypically presented as ugly, randy, mouthy, mad.  So Shakespeare is rare among dramatists of the day for his lively and empowering depictions of ageing ladies. This well-researched, accessible book looks at the way his old women subvert the stereotypes. There is particular focus on Paulina in The Winter’s Tale as a uniquely powerful old woman.
